Reward offered for information in farm arson

A reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest in an arson last Saturday at a farm on Stillwell Road near McColl in Marlboro County, according to Marlboro County Sheriff Fred Knight.

Knight said the arsonist torched several pieces of expensive farm equipment. He added the burned equipment is a great loss for the owner of the farm.

The State Law Enforcement Division's Arson Team helped in the investigation and recovered valuable evidence.

There have been fires in nearby fields and surrounding areas that could be connected to the Stillwell Road fire, Knight said.

If you have any information you're asked to call the Arson Hotline at 800-92-ARSON or the Marlboro County Sheriff's Office at (843) 479-5605.
